Vintage Strat to old MXR dynacomp, to Behringer V-AMP Pro, to Lexicon LXP verb, crown pwr. amp, 2 small cabs.
I converted an old Morley Volume pedal to stereo, that is in-line with my output from the V-AMP, before the Crown and the snake to FOH. This allows me to maintain my tonality with only changes in volume. This allows me to maintain constant gain structure through my input signal chain.
I also use the foot controller (Behringer) for program changes...I don't utilize the volume pedal on the FC because it controls volume at the DSP level. YUK!
I play "edgy" style like so many of us do..Brewster too.
